The High Empire and Grand Duchy of Redluin is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kaiser Fred von Hohenzollern und Sachsen with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.133 billion Redluinians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Redluin. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Redluinian economy, worth 301 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,425 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

People talk about things being better when men were men, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Redluin's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Kaiserism.

Redluin is ranked 65,427th in the world and 384th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,530.05 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
